#39 Paul Collier on the Moral Maze

Professor Sir Paul Collier on the Moral Maze, discussing the boat people crossing from Libya, around 35 mins. in said,

"... the real struggle is within these countries. They need their young people with initiative and education to lift them out of poverty and so tempting the brightest and the best to leave their countries, tempting the doctors to leave Africa and come and practice in London is very nice for the doctors: it is not a great moral position for ordinary people in Africa. We shouldn't be celebrating that."
